OK, awesome. You now have your target audience, in other words, the direction for your brand chosen. That is great and don't worry about this not being "perfect" at this point, as you move forward the pieces of the puzzle are going to come together.

Starting with a big PIECE today, your website. We are going to be taking our brand/audience idea and building out a website.

Building a Website Ain't Scary, It's FUN!

Building a website sounds like a "scary" process, but fortunately you have access to the most advanced, yet simplistic website platform in the world here at Wealthy Affiliate.

We pride ourselves as a technology company here at Wealthy Affiliate and we are the industry leaders in the website development space.

I am not going to toot our horn any longer, I would rather you experience the website builder and platform for itself. The first step today is going to be building your website, which will literally take you less than 30 seconds.

Click the SiteBuilder link within the menu, and you are going to be ready to build your website (and complete the next task).

Below I have included a video walking you through the SiteRubix platform here at WA and showing you how quickly and efficiently you can build a website here at Wealthy Affiliate.

 

DISCUSS VIDEO: Building Your Website in 30 Seconds, Literally

Task 1: Building Your Website

Your website is your foundation of your business. It is where all of your traffic is ultimately going to come to, where you are going to build brand and trust within the industry, and where you can promote products/services and generate revenue!

The SiteBuilder platform here at WA is the most simplistic, yet advanced in the industry. It is going to less than 30 seconds to get a full operational, profit ready Wordpress website up and running online.

There are 4 steps in the website build process, that I am going to walk you through here. To access the SiteBuilder and EVERYTHING related to your website, you will simply click the light blue "SiteRubix" button in the main menu.

Step 1: Choose the Kind of Website

There are really TWO options here, on a FREE website or on your OWN domain. Ideally, you will have your own domain, but that can come with time.

You can "register" your very own domains right within Wealthy Affiliate using our state of the art SiteDomains platform, which will allow you to instantly set-up your own domain for your own use.

If you are just starting out as a Starter member, you will be building a website on the .siterubix.com domain, which is a completely free website. You can build ONE FREE websites as a Starter.

As a Premium member, you can build and host up to 10 websites (including websites on your own domain). That is more than adequate to drive many multi-million dollar businesses over time and our hosting platform is industry leading in terms of speed, security, and reliability...all critical factors to running a successful online business.

For the sake of this training, we are going to be choosing "On a free domain".

Do know that within the Premium membership, you can easily MOVE a free .siterubix.com button to a registered domain (one you may own) using the "Premium Only" MOVE feature. So by all means start off with a free website.

Step 2: Choose a Domain

Remember last lesson when I chose my "brand". In this step, I am going to be placing my brand name into the "domain name" field. This is because this will be my website URL and my brand moving forward.

As you can see below, I have added my brand "real deal affiliate" into the domain field.


When you type in your domain, it will let you know if it is available or not. In my case it was, but if your first choice is not available simply do another search until you find a domain name that works for you.

You cannot put spaces in your domain name, hence why my domain is "realdealaffiliate".

Step 3: Choose a Website Name

The name of your website should match your domain, but it just needs to be grammatically correct (with proper spacing). You can see below my example of this:

Domain: realdealaffiliate.siterubix.com
Title: Real Deal Affiliate

It is as simple as that. Don't overthink this step, your title will be the same as your domain.

Step 4: Choose a Design

The last step is choosing a "look" for your theme. As a Starter member you will have access to ONE theme that has been hand picked for quality, speed, security, and overall theme design.

As a Premium Member though you will have access to over 4,134 designs (as shown below) or your website and there are always new designs being added to this daily. These are referred to as "Themes".

Choose a design that you like.

Click on the design you like, and then you will be able to build your site.

SiteRubix, a Next Level Website and Hosting Platform.

You are going to notice that there are many other website features allocated within the SiteRubix menu. I don't want to eat up too much of your time here, but it is important that you understand the incredible benefits of the SiteRubix platform.

The powerful hosting you have access to here is unparalleled in the Managed Wordpress hosting industry. We truly specialize here in providing a secure, robust and FAST platform for you to run your website.

  • SiteManager (Starter & Premium)
  • SiteContent (Starter & Premium)
  • SiteBuilder (Starter & Premium)
  • SiteDomains (Starter & Premium)

To make your sites secure and fast, we have some SiteRubix EXCLUSIVE technologies to make sure your websites are operating at lightening speeds, but also in a very secure way that protects you from hackers, spammers, and all forms of erroneous attacks.

There you have it, the low down of the SiteRubix platform and you have your website officially up and running online. Exciting stuff!

As we move forward within the training we are going to be building out your website content, and working to get indexed and ranked in Google (and do so for free).

My direction is to assist potential Affiliate Marketers to overcome their present income limitations. So these are people who are already earning but are frustrated by the "ceiling" of their income and would like to OVERCOME THEIR INCOME LIMITATIONS.

The name of my BRAND will be:

Overcome your income limitations

Please confirm if the above is in order.

Hi guys. I am a new here. I am thinking about targeting struggling network marketers as my niche to promote Wealthy Affiliate. My goal is convince them to transition from network marketing to affiliate marketing so they can build passive income through it. I don't know if this would work. Could anybody give me an advice please? Thanks!

You don't necessarily need to convert them, you can help them with their network marketing and the sale of the products within those, but you can also introduce them to the significant affiliate marketing opportunity.

Sometimes when you tell someone what they are doing is a bad idea, they will get defensive. We have many network marketers here that are thriving with the education here, but are also transitioning into other significant opportunities.

I want to focus on the how and why's of it. But I want to target people who are like me who are lucky if they can pay their monthly bills, so minimum wage (I guess) show them they can start at the bottom and work their way up. Which basically means starting as a starter member and letting the work they do on their website pay for premium. I believe that is the best way to promote WA. I'm willing to do all the research and I know I am going to lose alot of the functions. But I believe it is possible. I'm thinking something like. Selfhelp. /how-and-why-you-should-be-an-affiliate-marketer. I can then do research on other companies like WA and tell them why WA is the best way to go. What do you guys think?

Sure, that is absolutely a direction that you can head. Lots of people that you can relate to, lots of people that you can help, and ultimately lots of people that can benefit from the platform here. ;)

Hi Guy's,

In terms of target audience I was more thinking about promoting the training aspect of WA.
I know there's tons of people out there who have tried affiliate Marketing and have failed, mainly due to lack of training and support.
I know I was one of them.

Would this be workable?

Thanks

Hi this is my first Review which is step 9 out of 10 on the boot camp training.
My question :- Are their any special review templates that i can use to promote WA, even if i have to tweak them and make them my own, i would just like to get the ball rolling , bear in mind that i will be advertising Wealthy Affiliate Marketing Program which i feel is a brilliant way to launch the kind of niche that i'm interested in. ?

There're several ways in which you can go about creating the review, and we certainly have a lot of training on reviews here at WA.

You're cool with the review is to inform people and provide them with an experience where they are ready to make a purchasing decision either to purchase the product, or to purchase something else.

People tend to do a lot of research before they buy stuff online and if you can do the research for them, it will speed up the purchasing lifecycle. That is what you should set out to accomplish within your reviews.

Here is some high quality training that you can leverage on reviews. When you're creating a review, you need to make sure that you are being factually correct, providing insightful information, and you can layer your opinion and ideas on this. If you do this, you can be very successful with your reviews.
